Finished detail pics

Well after leaving my car with my wife for a year while I was in Afghanistan it was in need of a full outside detail. Started by dawn washing, clay, Adams SHR, Adams FMP, followed up by Adam quick sealant. My only complaint is about the sealant. I love it for the rims but when i sprayed it on the paint and wiped it off alot of areas were splotchy and streaky. I had to go back through several times to get it all wiped off. Not sure why this happened, I used as directed and did it the way the video showed. I love Adams products but will not be using quick sealant on my paint again. Anyways thanks for reading, here's the pics.

I don't think it's legal to drive a car made of glass mirrors.

Thanks! Those wheels look AWESOME! Ive been on the hunt for some new wheels to replace my stockers and I'm a fan of the 5 spoke design. I've been lookin at the TSW Stowes which are pretty similar to what you have except they don't have the rivets on the lip. I think you just helped me make up my mind! Now to figure out if I want silver or black. Ugh.

I have the same issues with the Quick Sealant. But those bugs sure come off easy after using it!

Looks great. If you want a spray sealant that won't do that, try out Werkstat Acrylic Jett Trigger.

Thanks. I have a love hate relationship with black, nothing looks sexier than clean black but as soon as one piece of dust gets on it
